Watch: Zion Williamson gets emotional after becoming No. 1 pick

Zion Williamson

Zion Williamson and everyone else who follow basketball have known for a very long time that he would be the top overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, but that didn’t make the moment any less special for the former Duke star.

Williamson was interviewed by ESPN after the New Orleans Pelicans officially selected him with the No. 1 pick, and the 18-year-old was overcome with emotion. He had to pause several times to fight back tears.

Williamson said being drafted No. 1 overall is something he has been dreaming of since he was 5 years old, so you can understand the reaction. Even if it has been a foregone conclusion that he would be the top pick, knowing it’s coming and actually hearing the commissioner announce your name are two entirely different things.
